Waves of Migration - Last chance to be amazed

Time is running out for Sydneysiders to experience Waves of Migration, the Australian National Maritime Museum’s dynamic projection show, celebrating the history of migration to Australia and the compelling stories of those who've come across the seas on its iconic roofline.

Waves of Migration is a thought-provoking eight-minute animated silent projection that weaves together Australia’s rich tapestry of migration stories. It has been enjoyed by Darling Harbour visitors since Australia Day but must end soon.

The light show follows the journeys of migrant boats, across oceans and cultures, through the passage of time. It depicts a fascinating array of personal stories from British convicts and early settlers, to Jewish refugees and displaced persons from war-torn Europe, to Ten Pound Poms, Vietnamese boat people and seaborne asylum seekers from Afghanistan. Together these waves of migration have made Australia the multi-cultural country it is today.



The rooftop show is supported by a dedicated website Australian National Maritime Museum Lightshow with links to the Museum’s collection and is a facility for people to share their immigration stories.

Waves of Migration joins the museum’s 100-metre-long Welcome Wall and vast collection of more than 10,000 immigration artefacts, personal diaries, letters and photographs, as a lasting tribute to the millions of people who have emigrated from around the world to settle in Australia.



The light show runs nightly after dark and must end on 17 February 2013. Waves of migration is free, is suitable for all ages and is best viewed from Pyrmont Bridge and around the King Street Wharf area at Darling Harbour.
